Running Day

To mark Whanau Sports Day that happened today, I decided to post this piece of narrative writing I wrote in 2013. The image is from 2015.


Walking on the greeny grass. It was as sunny as summer. All the house groups (Alamein, Tripoli, Tobruk, Benghazi) were lining up, singing their chants across the field. We all sat in our gazebos of the fields. The wind pushed my face gently. It was like a million people were cheering and screaming. I was a boiling egg, sitting outside the gazebo. 5 year olds went first. Pompoms were all over the pace, tangling peoples feet. I hear a bang. They run like cheetahs through the winds.

Screaming students were sitting in their giant gazebos. It then went on to the 8 year olds. I started to get worried. I kept hearing the clapper go “BANG!” each time people were racing. 9 year olds. My heart was pumping a million times a second, even though I haven’t ran in a race yet. 10 year olds. I started to feel a little bit sick. Then they said, “11 year old boys”.

Social Studies: Clothing in Asia

Image

Okay, so for Social Studies (I should mention for some reason that my teacher is also the Year 10 Dean, Mrs. Scott) 10E is studying Asia in a cultural and religious perspective. One of the tasks was to make a 'Clothing in Asia' document, showcasing the different clothing people wear in different countries of Asia. I had to research these four countries: JapanRussiaIndiaPhilippines The screenshot below this blurb is final result. It's a bit rushed towards the end, but at least I finished it.
Enjoy! And if you want to, leave some feedback and feedforward so I know what to work on and improve. Thanks!

A piece of writing from 2012 that I never posted...

There was once a 20 year old named Guy. He lived in California, America, where the shining sun never went away. Guy was a little boring and ordinary. He hardly did anything besides watch TV and go shopping for food, though he was almost broke. He lived by himself in his one-storey home. He was a lazy pig, sitting around. Sometimes, when he sat on his couch, the shining sun made Guy stick to the fabric. He was jealous about nearly everyone in his family was on the news, except for him.

One day, Guy began to get hungry, like a fox, and there was no food in his kitchen, so, he went outside to go fishing at the nearest bush forest. In the lake, he heard nothing but the sounds of birds flying as fast a jet, but they looked all black, flying individual. “This is SO boring.” Guy exclaimed. He kept fishing. Hours later, he caught a bite. The bite was pulling the line, pulling it until it made the row-boat move. Faster and faster the boat went.…

Five Years Blogging

So back in January I realised that March 1st would be the five year anniversary of my first blogpost.

I really didn't know how to celebrate it, so I resorted to making a document dedicated to each year.

So here you go.
